The Carolina Panthers announced Monday that they’ve officially hired Baylor DC Phil Snow as their new defensive coordinator.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Baylor DC Phil Snow is expected to join new Panthers HC Matt Rhule’s coaching staff, possibly in the same role.
Joe Person reported earlier that Snow is a candidate for the Panthers’ defensive coordinator job and Rhule also wants to bring Baylor LBs coach Mike Siravo with him.
Snow, 64, began his coaching career back in 1976 as a high school coach. He worked for a number of schools including Boise State, California, Arizona State, UCLA and Washington before taking his first NFL coaching job in 2004 with the Lions.
After four years with Detroit, Snow was hired as the defensive coordinator at Eastern Michigan and eventually joined Rhule’s Temple coaching staff in 2013. Snow followed Rhule to Baylor and has spent the past two years on his staff.
